Google introduces 'semantic' search

Published on .

Menlo Park, Calif.—Google Inc. is retooling its search algorithms to more prominently display things people are asking for in search queries. While still focused on its traditional inbound links and relevant content, Google said in a statement that it is adding semantic capabilities which understand typed questions to return better answers. No date was given for the anticipated rollout of the new algorithm. The new capabilities came with Google's 2010 acquisition of Metaweb Technologies.
